    So I've just moved from my wifi only iPad to a 3G on. The battery life on the wifi only was great. But the 3G is no where near as good. I only have used it on wifi at the moment but I can't see how the 3G battery would differ so much. At first I used therestoredsettingfrom my old wifi only but ive just done a full restore and fresh start up and the battery life is still crap. Every hour i loose about 15% battery life. Is there any test i can do to give me some idea if the batteries shot? I'm getting about 5 hours sold use which is a combination of browsing, games, reading. So no major stuff. 3G is switched off so only using wifi at the moment.

    Cheers

    Did you check if there any open location based apps who might be using the A-GPS? Because the battery should be the same.Also, make sure the "Celluar Data" option is off.
